3 mile short tempo pace run. Missed my actual short tempo pace by :08 per mile. It was brutally hot.

OK, never mind that long bike ride I was gonna do -- ain't happening. Ironically because I will actually BE IN the Hamptons this weekend...Will have to also figure out a way to fit in a 13 mile "long" run. These early runs in marathon training are so laughable because they're pretty short, but still hard to schedule around ...life. And summer fun.

Monday - July 15

Oh man. Wonderful day at the beach yesterday followed by HOURS of traffic getting home because of an accident on the NJ Parkway. Ugh. Could NOT get out of bed this morning for my bike ride. I gotta get my ass in gear if I want to have a good century ride to Montauk at the end of the month. I will try to do a long bike on Saturday. 

Not enough hours in the day.

Intervals tomorrow.

Also, just signed up for the West Point Tri -- gonna try and place this year, barring a similar foot cramp on the damn swim.

A humid but not super hot 11 mile run. An 8:15 min/mile pace feels harder when it's a 7:52. I think the caffeine in the GU gel was messin' with my pacing -- was going way too fast for the first couple miles, so I slowed down slightly and brought the pace down a bit. Felt hard.

Run

Hard run. Thank goodness it had rained a half hour before I hit the road, AND it was overcast -- helped on some of the last parts of the run and while I was a sweaty mess at the end, it wasn't nearly as bad as when it's sunny!
